My two-and-a-half year old son watches “Go, Diego, go!” now and again. I let him, I’ll admit it. I let him sit, bug-eyed, mouth agape, watching colorful pictures flicker on and off in front of his angelic little face. I allow him to feel as though it’s a special treat to be able to sit […]
Is it just me, or does everyone go through a phase of thinking they need to get rid of everything in their life that isn’t required for the basic support of their physical existence and start living more in tune with the universe around them? Okay, perhaps it’s just a few of you? How ’bout a […]
You’ve seen examples of those bumper stickers and tee-shirts that say things like “Divers do it deeper” and “Pilots do it in their sleep” ad nauseum… and when we read them we, being of dirty mind and jealous body, think the “It” refers to S-E-X. Or maybe we don’t think it does, but we know it […]

For years – decades probably – we’ve seen pictures of cute little kitties playing with cute little balls of string and yarn. The cute little kitties are happy. The viewer of these pictures could probably hear them purring and mewing in their mind’s ear. But the reality is that yarn and string are BAD for […]

My family is amused by my crush on Johnny Depp. In fact, they flat-out indulge me. For Christmas, my husband gave me an autographed 8×10 and my daughter bought me a Pirates of the Carribbean II poster featuring my favorite expatriate. Johnny embodies the typical “unattainable bad boy” persona that so many fantasy men do. […]
This weekend is the date of one of the most highly publicized non-profit events in our area. Saturday morning people from all over northwest Arkansas will be congregating in Fayetteville to walk, run, shuffle, and sprint to raise money for breast cancer research in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. But this Saturday […]
Okay, he actually said this one a while ago, but it was one of the comments that made me think he deserved some space on my blog: “I’m the master of little, small sounds!” Brilliant, right?
I’m going to start logging the ridiculous/humorous/farcical/inane/bustful comments that my beloved hubby seems to come up with on a regular basis.
